The Port of Ramsgate serves cross-Channel freight traffic and smaller working craft. It is run on behalf of the public by the local authority, Thanet District Council.

Like what we said abaout Manson, the local airport, the attraction of Ramsgate is really that it it is near to the town of Margate where which is becoming popular with very trendy people.

Ramsgate is located on the Eastern tip of the UK, not too far from London, Folkestone and our friends on the Continent it means it is well placed for logistics. Bibby and some other well know logistics providers are there offering 3PL services and Stowga have found pallet storage space for customers in the area in the past.
